Photographing on the tallest mountain in the world – the volcano Mauna Kea with the NOIRLab Gemini telescope was one of the most powerful experiences in my life. At the same time, it was also one of the most difficult photoshoots due to temperatures well below zero, struggling with a strong wind, against which it was sometimes impossible to even walk, and less dense air, which made the whole thing even more difficult. Well, I saw the most beautiful starry sky in my life and took away great experiences and a few unique images that no one has taken properly before.
